What are Workplace Giving Campaigns?
Whether a small business, a major corporation or even a non-profit organization, you can join the numerous local organizations that care about our community and invest in it through the annual United Way campaign. Holding a United Way campaign not only provides your employees with rewarding team building experiences, but it also gives your organization the opportunity to play a direct role in improving the lives of our neighbors.

What does it take to run a campaign?
Every workplace campaign is different and can be shaped around your organization’s culture. Some employees simply like to invest in our Community Impact Fund through easy payroll deduction. Others like to also experience the impact of United Way’s work up close and personal by participating in our annual Day of Action, visiting one of our partner agencies, or inviting passionate United Way volunteers and staff to speak at their events or meetings.
Setting up and running a campaign is simple, and we can help you every step of the way!
Employee Campaign Coordinators (ECCs)
United Way campaigns happen thanks to employees who volunteer as Employee Campaign Coordinators (ECC's). They are the face of United Way at their workplace, educating their peers about why United Way is the best way to make the biggest difference in our community, and inspiring them to do something about it.
If you are currently an ECC, click on our toolbox below for resources that will help you throughout every stage of your campaign—from your initial meetings with Senior Management to thanking and celebrating your donors. If you have questions or need help, we are just an e-mail or phone call away.
